Look what I can do!

Well, it has been a rather boring couple of weeks around our house. The boys were sick with colds last week and now Christian and I have it. Cross your fingers...I think we are all on our way to getting better. Just wanted to share some pictures mainly for the grandma's since they were starting to get after me.

4 month milestones!

Travis had his 4 month check up. He now weighs 14 pounds 8 ounces and is 26 inches long and healthy! He has acquired the name fats (from his dad) and cheeks (from his grandma Foulger). The last couple of days have pretty fun for us as parents. We started Travis on rice cereal Tuesday in hopes that he might sleep better. He was quite the champ sleeper going to bed around 10 and getting up around 6 to eat and then going back to sleep for an hour or two. But, the last week or so he has been up like every few hours...worse than he was as a new born! We had a much better night last night...yeah! Anyways, he seemed to like it pretty well and is getting the hang of eating something other than milk.

Wednesday, Travis rolled over for the first time. He rolled from his back to his tummy and of course got mad after being on his tummy for a little while.
Cereal Face!

At 4 months, some of Travis' favorite things to do are:

*Play with his toes...they are great toys!

*Suck his thumb. Yep...we have a thumb sucker on our hands! I'm not so excited about it, but man...he is such a good baby!

...screech and gasp...

...and Christian's favorite thing to do with him is "the trick". Make sure to turn up your volume for a surprise!

The burp totally threw him off!

We are so glad to have Travis in our family. He is such a good baby and warms our hearts with his smile.

I'm confused...

...I thought it was the middle of the WINTER! We experienced near summer temps yesturday and loved every minute of it! Because it was so nice, we loaded up Carson's motorcycle and the stroller and went to the church parking lot so Carson had a flat surface to ride on (we have quite the hill in front of our house). As we were driving over to the church the temp in our car read 65 degrees! It was great and we had fun playing in the sunshine!

You can't see it very well, but the thermometer says 65...woo hoo!

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind for our family. We have managed to celebrate not one, not two, but three Christmas', two birthdays, New Year's and our 5th Anniversary! We made it home Christmas Eve where we started the festivities with Christian's family. We helped in the annual making of gnocchi, a favorite, visited, read the Christmas story, and opened our Christmas pj's. Then it was off to visit my family. We had some finger foods and just relaxed. Christmas day we opened gifts with my family, had breakfast, got ready and headed to Lovell. We also got to talk to Christian's brother who is in the Republic of Georgia on his mission. After lunch and gifts there, we stopped by Grandma Dorothy's house to say hi and then headed to Powell for dinner. I swear, we eat every 2-3 hours during the holidays at home...not a good thing! We were truly spoiled by everyone! The rest of our trip was full of running around visiting everyone. We had so much fun and it always seems like time flies by too fast! It was so much fun to see everyone and can't wait to see them soon! Sorry about all the pictures and the fact that they aren't in order!
